Team Cofidis

Cofidis' Guillaume Martin has climbed to the second place in the General Classification after being part of the 14th stage breakaway.

The Frenchman was part of the breakaway of the day in La Grande Boucle, which was formed after the 100 kilometre mark. Although, Bauke Mollema attacked and left the rest behind, this effort was good enough for Martin to climb to the second place of the General Classification.

"It was a very difficult stage," said Martin. "I saw an opportunity rising in the middle of the stage, and it was risky because I have spent a lot of energy to be in this breakaway. In the end, I think I had a dehydration problem. I hope to have recovered well by tomorrow. I knew that with a downhill finish, the victory was going to be difficult.

"But I'm very happy with the way we raced with the team. Usually we're on the defensive, but this year I wanted to take risks. And it paid off today! If we don't try, we can't know. I have forced my destiny, and I will do everything to continue to seize the opportunities that will present themselves to me."
